What are Anxiety Disorders?
What does it mean when a person has an anxiety disorder? You experience extreme symptoms or a heightened level of symptoms that last much longer than the short-term normal anxiety.
Some indicators of anxiety disorder potentially include:
- Constant worrying
- Stress beyond that experienced by most other people
- Anticipating the worst of situations that may not even have occurred yet
- Avoidance of conditions that potentially lead to anxiety symptoms
- Irritability or restlessness
- Inability to focus or concentrate
There are several other potential symptoms of anxiety disorders, including muscle tension, fatigue, shortness of breath, pounding heart, and sleep problems. Although people with anxiety typically experience several of these symptoms, everyone with an anxiety disorder does not have the same symptoms.
Several factors possibly determine which symptoms you have, and their severity, along with your specific type of anxiety disorder.
Are There Different Types of Anxiety Disorders?
Anxiety disorders require diagnosis by a professional, such as a psychologist, a therapist, or a specialist from anxiety treatment programs that focus on treating anxiety disorders. The professional staff typically treats other types of mental health disorders.
There are several primary types of anxiety disorders, such as:
- Generalized anxiety disorder
- Social anxiety disorder which is also known as social phobia
- Panic disorder
There are other types of anxiety disorders, including separation anxiety disorder, and substance-induced, or medication-induced anxiety disorder.
Each type of anxiety disorder has its symptoms, although symptoms sometimes overlap. The National Institute of Mental Health describes the signs of primary anxiety disorders.
Generalized anxiety disorder symptoms include feeling restless, irritable, on-edge, having difficulty concentrating, difficulty sleeping, and other symptoms.
Social anxiety disorder symptoms include having a deep fear of social situations, worrying that your symptoms will result in embarrassment from negative evaluations from other people, and making a concentrated effort to avoid social situations.
Panic disorder results in recurrent panic attacks that possibly results in shaking, sweating, palpitations, feelings of being out of control, and other possible symptoms, which your anxiety treatment programs highly-trained staff will discuss with you.
Explaining your symptoms and discussing your symptoms with us helps the qualified, empathetic professionals determine your treatment needs.
